Synchronizing Changes from the Sorter to a Timeline

NOTE: Beginning December 31st, 2017, development of Studiocode and iCoda will stop and new licenses will not be available for purchase. Please consider Vosaic as a replacement. Read More.

When utilizing the Sorter Window to edit/add/remove/change any coded, labeled, or transcribed information, it's generally a good habit to synchronize those changes back to the timeline(s) the Sorter was generated from. The following steps explain this process.

*It might be worth noting that although the following feature is called "Synchronize", it's more like a push. Meaning, the flow of information is only going from the Sorter to the timeline.

1. Open only the desired movie package (e.g. timeline) and desired Sorter. In other words, close all other windows.

2. After making changes in the Sorter, select the desired rows by doing one of the following:
? COMMAND+a to select all rows
? Single click on a desired row number, then hold COMMAND while single clicking on additional row numbers to add to your selection
? Single click on a desired row number, then hold SHIFT while clicking on a different row number which will select all rows in between

3. Single click on the Synchronize button on the Sorter toolbar. This will sync (e.g. push) the new changes from the Sorter to the timeline.

Possible changes that can be synchronized with the timeline:
? Editing the name of a Label in the Sorter adds the new Label to corresponding instance in the timeline. It does not edit the name of the original instance.
? Editing the name of a Group in the Sorter adds the new Group (and thus Labels) to the timeline. It does not edit the name of the original Group.
? Editing the name of a Row name in the Sorter adds the new row to the timeline. It does not edit the name of the original row in the timeline. Thus, the instances for which the Row names have been changed in the Sorter will be removed from the original row(s) and placed in the new row(s).
? Editing the Mark-in/out times in the Sorter window for instances will make the same changes to the mark-in/out times to the corresponding instances in the timeline.
? Adding/Deleting Label names, Columns, or Rows in the Sorter will add/delete the corresponding Labels, Groups, or instances from the timeline.
